Victor Valley Wastewater Ribbon-Cutting

On September 26 the Victor Valley Wastewater Reclamation Authority held the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for its new Omnivore Digester. The anaerobic digester and biogas production system increases current capacity, allowing the wastewater treatment plant to be 100% energy neutral by 2015. Victor Valley is the first in North America showcasing this high solids technology by partner Anaergia. The project was funded in part by the California Energy Cmmission (CEC) Public Interest Energy Research (PIER) program.

Logan Olds, the General Manager of VVWRA said: “Our goal is to demonstrate that we can operate our existing infrastructure more efficiently.  With recuperative thickening or even with traditional digesters, the ability to co-digest an additional waste stream can bring added value to the facility, whether it be through minimizing tipping fees or by producing power from the additional methane that is generated as a result of the decomposition.” – Read the complete Anaergia press release.
